Another Push-up Challenge!

Post by Lost_Jock »

Following on from Ranger Disinfertention's 1000 Push Up Club thread, here: viewtopic.php?p=379253#379253

I thought I'd try a new idea.

How many push-ups can you manage in the course of day at work.............without getting caught?

I've got no chance of getting to 1000 push-ups yet anyway, and with this challenge, I can blame my busy work schedule for stopping me from doing too many.

I'll post again when I get back home, and let you know how I got on.

I got caught midway through my fourth set.

So the total so far is: 71


I was doing so well, then I saw the flashing blue light behind me (cruise control is wonderful thing, don't you think?).

when I first got to my company, I was that guy who was always screwing up. So I did alot of pushups.
I dont know what my max was, but I do remember my TL had me do a minimum of 200 PU a day for about 2 weeks. She kept a log, every time I did some (with a witness of E-5 rank or higher...) I was to report to her with said witness so she could write em out. Once or twice to be a smartass I did more than 200

WTF?!?

That those two terms should ever be equated...

Bat saved us from dealing with a lot of crap. I could never serve under a woman (don't be angry, I've already been called a bigot for that one before - boo hoo).

You could if she was riding you like a Brahma bull.

I'll see how many I can get away with. Althogh I may go lookin for a female TL to ride me like a Brahma. Long as she ain't got no strap on. (It ain't like I was in 3rd Bat or nuthin.)
